What Is Christianity Really

Christianity is not a religion; rather it is a relationship one has with Jesus Christ. No religion comes from God because religion looks at man standards while relationship (which is found in Jesus Christ) looks at God's standards. In other words, one has to look at God's perspectives and not human's perspectives when considering things including having access to heaven (where God's glory and presence is manifested). God says be holy for I am Holy.

Looking at God's perspective makes it impossible to a person to gain access to heaven based on one's works/deeds - for God is Holy i.e., His level of perfection and magnificence is infinite. Furthermore, the laws of God were given to men to show them how holy and perfect God is while knowing well that men are not capable of keeping all the laws. For example Jesus says that by looking at a woman and lusting after her in your mind, you committed adultery in your heart - or by being angry at someone without a reason is already a sin - by amplifying in this way the law, Our Lord suggests that a man should not trust in his works to make it to heaven, he/she will not succeed as previously stated, God's standard of Holiness is very high; Hence, the need for a Saviour.

Suppose a man who behaves 99.9% well while on earth and 1% sins. This man trusted in his works to get to heaven. This man will not enter heaven - this decision has nothing to do with the man himself, but all to do with God who is Holy and hence cannot behold sin. The mistake some people do is to believe that this will be unjust because they look at this man's standard (99.9% good deeds) instead of God's standard (Holiness). But of the truth, God is just in that He cannot deny himself - i.e., he cannot compromise his holiness, and because God is good, he want to raise us at his standard - be ye holy for I am Holy. - and this is possible only by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. To be declared righteous by God is obtained by faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. In other words, you will go to heaven should you believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Jesus will justify you by his blood (i.e., wash away all your sins) and sanctify you with his Holy Spirit - again, this is a free gift, so that all will humble themselves before our Saviour Jesus Christ. As a believer of Christ, the Holy Spirit of God will teach you and will help you to do the works that please God. Now everything good that you do is solely by the grace of God (Spirit of God) and for Jesus's glory. The Spirit of God in you will gradually take control over your tongue and the words that proceed out of your mouth; over how you behave to align it with God's words i.e., The Spirit of God in you will remind you of the things of God and help you to glorify Jesus in your behaviour. To sum up, our attitude should be, thank you Lord Jesus for the grace for doing this good deed, to you be the glory
